The streets of Liverpool have been given a 1920s makeover as shooting is underway for season 4 of Peaky Blinders, according to NME.
Writer and creator of the series Steven Knight told Deadline “I’m very, very excited because I’m just completing (the writing of) Episode 6 of Series 4, which again I think is the best yet. And I’m loving it and it’s not like work, it’s not like a labour, I love doing it, and the boys are coming back and they’re loving the scripts, and we start shooting in March.”
Photos of shooting have been shared by fan accounts, with one photo showing Cillian Murphy as Thomas Shelby, running down the street with a pistol in hand.

Steven Knight also confirmed that Tom Hardy would be returning to the show as violent gang leader Alfie Solomons during the new series, saying: “We can’t do it without Alfie.”
Steven Knight continued: “I want to shine the light on the 1920s and hopefully the 1930s, making it a true between the wars family story,” he said. “I want the family trajectory to continue upwards and for them to become wealthier and more powerful. The only thing I want to do is for Tommy to be knighted, to become Sir Thomas Shelby for various nefarious reasons!”
Who's excited?! We know we are!
